FOOT PEDAL
INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
Getting Started
WARNING
Do not run the motor when the propeller is out of the water.
Contact with the rotating propeller may result in severe injury.
Do not use the motor in areas where you or other people in the
water may come into contact with the rotating propeller.
Always disconnect the motor from the battery before cleaning or
servicing the propeller to avoid injury.
CAUTION
When stowing or deploying the motor, be aware of the risk of
entrapment or pinching from moving parts, which can result in
injury.
When stowing or deploying the motor, be aware of slick surfaces
around the motor. Slipping when stowing or deploying the motor
may result in injury.
Always wear safety goggles, ear protection, and a dust mask
when drilling, cutting, or sanding.
Connecting to Power
You can power the foot pedal by connecting it to the boat
battery. If you prefer a completely wireless installation, you can
power the foot pedal using AA batteries.
NOTICE
If you connect the foot pedal to the boat battery, you should not
install AA batteries. Batteries left in the foot pedal for long
periods may corrode and cause damage.
1 Route the included power cable to the boat battery or circuit
breaker, and to the location where you plan to mount or use
the foot pedal.
If needed, you can extend the power cable using 18 AWG
(0.82 mm2) wire.
NOTE: If you extend the power cable, you must first remove
the fuse and a re-install it between the boat battery or circuit
breaker and the cable extension.
Connect
the red wire to the positive terminal of the battery or
2
breaker, and connect the black wire to the negative terminal.
3 Push the connector on the power cable onto the port on the
bottom of the foot pedal, and turn the locking ring clockwise
to secure it.
4 Route the power cable through the channel on the bottom of
the foot pedal.
NOTICE
When drilling or cutting, always check what is on the opposite
side of the surface.
To avoid damage to your boat, this device should be installed by
a qualified marine installer. Specific knowledge of marine
electrical systems is required for proper installation.
Tools Needed
• Two AA alkaline, NiMH, or lithium batteries (if powering with
batteries)
• Four 5 mm (#10) stainless steel self-tapping screws (to
secure the pedal to the boat deck)
• A drill and a 3 mm (1/8 in.) drill bit (to secure the pedal to the
boat deck)
• Marine sealant (to seal the screws when securing the pedal
to the boat deck)
Installing Batteries
The foot pedal can operate using two AA alkaline, NiMH, or
lithium batteries (not included). Use lithium batteries for best
results.
1 Lift up the front of the foot pedal as far as possible.
2 Pinch the sides of the battery cover , and pull up to remove
it.
Mounting and Power Considerations
When selecting a location for the foot pedal, observe these
considerations.
• The foot pedal communicates wirelessly with the trolling
motor, so you do not need to connect it to the motor using a
cable.
• You can power the foot pedal by connecting it to a power
source using the provided cable, or by using two AA
batteries.
• If you prefer, you can mount the foot pedal to the boat deck.
Mounting hardware is not provided.
• If your boat has a built-in or aftermarket foot pedal well, you
can install the pedal in the well. Installation hardware is not
provided.
3 Insert two AA batteries, observing polarity.
4 Place the battery cover over the batteries, and push down
until both sides snap into place.

Mounting the Foot Pedal on the Boat Deck
NOTICE
You are not required to mount the foot pedal to the deck, but it is
highly recommended, especially if you are powering it using
batteries. An unsecured foot pedal may slide on the deck and
fall off of the boat.
1 Determine the appropriate mounting hardware for your boat

deck.
You should use 5 mm (#10) stainless steel self-tapping
screws whose length is determined by the material of your
boat deck.
Place the included mounting template in the selected
location.
Using a 3 mm (1/8 in.) bit, drill the pilot holes indicated on the
template, and remove the template.
Select an action:
• If you are powering the foot pedal using batteries, check
the weather cap on the power connector on the bottom of
the foot pedal to make sure it is secured.
• If you are powering the foot pedal using the included
cable, connect the cable to the bottom of the foot pedal if
you have not done so already.
Apply marine sealant to the pilot holes to prevent water from
entering the boat deck (optional).
Secure the foot pedal to your boat deck using the mounting
hardware.
8 Apply marine sealant to the pilot holes to prevent water from
entering the boat deck.
9 Secure the foot pedal (and shim, if necessary) to the tray
using the mounting hardware.
Fabricating a Permanent Shim
If you are installing the foot pedal in a tray and you would like to
raise the height, you should fabricate a permanent shim to install
under the pedal.
1 Purchase a suitable shim material, such as marine grade
PVC, of the appropriate thickness for your installation.
2 Trace the shape of the tray on the shim material or a piece of
paper.
3 Cut the shim from the material.
4 Place the shim into the tray to check the fit, and trim the
edges as needed.
Locate
the drain hole in the tray, mark the location of the hole
5
on the shim, and drill a hole through the shim to allow water
to drain properly.
Adjusting the Tension
You can adjust the tension on the foot pedal if it moves too
easily or not easily enough.
1 Locate the tension adjustment screw on the left side of the
foot pedal.
Mounting the Foot Pedal in a Foot Pedal Tray
Before you can mount the foot pedal in a tray, you must install
the tray in the deck of your boat following the instructions
provided with the tray.
If you plan to secure the foot pedal inside the tray, you must
purchase the appropriate mounting hardware for the tray
material.
NOTE: You should use 5 mm (#10) stainless steel self-tapping
screws that are long enough to pass through any shim used and
through the tray material.
1 Place the foot pedal into the tray and test the height of the
pedal.
2 If necessary, place temporary shims under the pedal until it is
at the height you want.
After you determine the height, you should fabricate a
permanent shim to install in the tray with the foot
pedalFabricating a Permanent Shim, page 2.
3 Select an action:
• If you are powering the foot pedal using the included
cable, connect the cable to the bottom of the foot pedal if
you have not done so already.
• If you are powering the foot pedal using batteries, check
the weather cap on the power connector on the bottom of
the foot pedal to make sure it is secured.
4 If you are using a shim to raise the height of the pedal,
secure the shim to the bottom of the foot pedal (optional).
5 If you do not plan to secure the foot pedal to the bottom of
the tray, place the pedal into the tray to complete the
installation.
6 If you plan to secure the foot pedal to the bottom of the tray,
trim and place the included mounting template in the tray.
7 Using an appropriate drill bit for the tray material and the
mounting hardware, drill the pilot holes indicated on the
template, and remove the template.

2 Select an action:
• Turn the screw clockwise to increase the tension.
• Turn the screw counterclockwise to decrease the tension.
3 Test the foot pedal, and repeat the previous step until the foot
pedal moves like you want it to.
